Greek Week goals include
improving race relations
By STUART TONKINSON
Assistant News Editor
"Greeks , . . Building Bridges" is the
theme of this year's Greek Week, which
"We're building ties between male and
female Greeks, blacks and whites, Greeks
and non-Greeks," said junior Mark
Moser, IFC co-chairperson for Greek
Week and a member of Pi Kappa Alpha
Greek Week is an annual activity run
by the Interfraternity Council and the
Panhellenic Council designed to increase
contact between non-affiliated students
and Greeks, said Ellen Rue of Alpha
Delta Pi. sorority. Rue is Panhel co
chairperson for Greek Week with Moser
and senior Faye Hardy of Delta Sigma
Greek Weekalso provides fraternities
and sororities with an opportunity to
raise money for philanthropic purposes,
"We try to do something which will
help the University in a specific, direct,
way," she said. . ,
This year funds raised through Greek
Week activities will be donated to the
Martin Luther King Scholarship Fund,
Rue said. The fund needs about $5,000
for the scholarship, which is given to the
junior who has done the most for civil
rights at UNC, Rue said. The money
raised will form a pool from which in
terest can accumulate, thus ensuring the
continued life of the scholarship, she
Funds for the scholarship will come
from donations from Greeks and other
students interested in making contribu
tions, Rue said. Greeks are also being
asked to give up their dinner Friday and
donate the saved money to the fund.
. Greek Week also serves to bring Greeks ,
closer together and to increase their sense
of community, said junior Brian Hunni
cutt, IFC president and Zeta Beta Tau
. "Greek Week workshops will be con
. centrating on stressing the leadership op
portunities fraternities provide and ex
plaining the responsibilities Greeks have
to their members, the school , and the
campus," Hunnicutt said.
Race relations will be stressed during
the week, Hunnicutt said "Black frater
nities and white fraternities are not alike,
but it is important to realize that both ex
ist," he said.
The keynote speaker for the week is
Bob Leach, vice president of Student Af
fairs at Florida State University. He will
speak to Greeks on race relations Mon
day at 6:15 p.m. at the Carolina Inn.
Other planned activities include a step
show at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in Great
Hall featuring both black and white
Greeks and a party in the Pit for all
students with cake and Coke 10 a.m.
. There will also be a reception Tuesday
in the Di Phi Chambers in New East for
Greeks and non-Greeks to participate in
discussion. Greek Games will be held on
Ehringhaus field at 4 p.m. Thursday.
Granville West floors may become coed
By SHERRI GOODSjON
Several floors of all-male Granville West may
become coed next year because of the large number of
female applicants for space in Granville Residence
Female residents will take up approximately 60 per
cent of the total available spaces next year, said
Melvyn Rinfret, general manager of Granville Towers.
Rinfret said that Granville would have to provide
spaces for at least 50 to 60 more women next year.
Other options to the space shortage besides coed
floors in Granville West are an all-female floor in West
or several coed floors in Granville South becoming all
female, Rinfret said.
Rinfret said that the need for spaces was based upon
the number of applications but that nothing definite
could be decided until the management receives an
exact lease count next week.
Student reaction to the switch has been mixed, Rin
fret said. : "We've had some letters (from hall
presidents) that don't want a coed situation and some
letters that do," he said.
At a forum in Granville Cafeteria Monday night,
residents were given the chance to air their views about
the problem. Some residents of Granville West spoke
at the meeting in opposition to West turning coed, said
Bret Thompson, assistant tower manager of Granville
West and adviser to GRC.
"The guys (in Granville West) are very invested in
the status quo they have almost built fraternities in
the halls. Their hall unity and their IM sports pro
grams are very important to them," Thompson said
last week. -
On March 16, the management of Granville Resi
dence College sent a questionnaire to all Granville resi
dents asking residents' opinions on the potential coed
situation. About 38 percent of returning Granville
residents completed the questionnaire, one-half of
whom opposed the switch, Rinfret said. .
Thompson said that several hall presidents were
sending the management letters with petitions signed
by their hall residents opposing the change in West but
that other halls were indifferent.
Bill Whitley, 8th floor president in Granville West,
.said he was opposed to West becoming coed. "The
residents in West were given the opportunity to live in
"coed halls when they signed their contracts, so we
think management should be responsible to the
students," he said.
Scott Bray, a senior Granville West resident, said he
understood management's position. "There are no
bad feelings Rinfret will do .what's best for
business, and he is looking for input from students,"
